Reports that Jewish extremists would create "provocations" spurred Jerusalem police to close the Temple Mount to Jewish visitors on Tisha b'Av.
Muslim leaders threatened to riot in return, leading to the closure on Sunday, according to reports. The calls for the provocations appeared on several websites, Ynet reported.
Muslims are observing the holy month of Ramadan, and Muslim worshipers reportedly were allowed on the Temple Mount on Sunday.
